With the midterm elections still fresh in our minds, the state of politics in Washington is shifting rapidly. House Republicans have been accused of unethical behavior, as evidenced by their failed attempt to read the Constitution aloud on the House floor and their ridiculous fifteen attempts at voting for Speaker. This misbehavior has been further highlighted by their inability to swear in George “Anthony Devolder” Santos.
Now more than ever, it is essential for progressive voters to pay close attention to what happens in Washington and be vocal about their opinions on these matters. Had only 3,340 votes shifted differently during the midterms, Democrats would have a majority in the House. This serves as proof that every vote truly does count and that now is not a time for complacency from those who believe in progressive values.
The spotlight should remain firmly on these corrupt extremist idiots as they may lose their majority sooner than expected due to scandal or turmoil within their ranks. Democratic activists need to stay vigilant and be prepared to mobilize if there are any signs of danger from House Republican leadership. By doing so, they can ensure that false promises made during election season do not come true – such as allowing constitutionally-unacceptable divisive measures with no regard for civil rights or social justice – while securing a better future for our nation through meaningful representation at the polls.
The recent events involving House Republicans showcases how broken our current political system is; one where rhetoric overrules facts and where people holding certain party lines become immune from any criticisms or consequences when it comes down to illegal activities like voter suppression or lack of representation for minorities and disadvantaged communities. If we want real change, we must take action now before it’s too late – starting with getting out the vote and mobilizing whenever needed against those who seek to perpetuate this corrupt agenda under an already fragile democracy.
